I think it's a remote linking thing. Once I went to tvtropes and viewed the image, the link started working.

Also, more sneak peaks of the special edition:

I beg for 2016 to end a week earlier than planned.
But 2016 must know some folks in high places, b/c it shtups us thusly:

As it continues to sweep a third of the stars from the sky with its tail, right up to the very end (plus one second).

If 2016 ends a week early, any tragedies that would have happened in that week would just sour the new year.

Released a while ago, but this section was taken and re-released upon the sad news: Leia's Theme, performed by Sonya Belousova of PlayerPiano.

The tributes that took place seemed wonderful. From what I understand, filming for Star Wars: Episode VIII has largely finished, so Carrie Fisher will likely appear in it, and I'd imagine it would be partly dedicated to her memory. I suspect her death will be handled well in the writing and filming of Episode IX as well.

It's certainly been a terrible year for the deaths of so many of our icons and heroes. Fingers crossed 2017 isn't nearly as bad.

Trying to snag a bit o' the hair of the Wampa that bit me last night. Pangalactic gargleblasters with flaming blue-milk chasers. [B)]

I requested this from the local jizz-band, in memory of her Royal Galactic Majesty Leia Organa, since they didn't know Lapti Nek -

Right, Star Wars day is upon us and with 2 new films I think viewing order needs to be discussed. Up until 2015 I'd been saying:

May 4th: Episode IV and Episode V ("may the fourth be with you")
May 5th: Episode II and Episode III ("revenge of the fifth")
May 6th: Episode VI and optional Episode I ("revenge of the sixth")

... taking the Machete Order and applying it to the "revenge of the fifth/sixth" debate.

After January last year I would have said replace Episode I with Episode VII (go fully into the Machete Order and set up May 7th for Episode VIII and Episode IX when they're finally released), but I'm not sure where to throw in Rogue One.

A friend of mine recently said it should go before Episode IV since the very end of Rogue One marks the beginning of A New Hope, but I don't agree. Rogue One is so tonally different from the other films that it doesn't seem right to place it first, and ANH sets up what Star Wars, at least in terms of primary story line, actually is (and spoilers the main protagonists of Rogue One all die, so it has the same "issue" The Phantom Menace has of having few characters to get attached to).

Personally, I'd place Rogue One after Episode VI and before Episode VII (dropping TPM altogether). It makes the timeline of the "old saga" less "skippy", maintaining the idea that II and III follow on directly from Vader's reveal as Luke's father and without having the audience then wait longer for "wait, but what happens next between Luke and Vader?". Then playing Rogue One gives you a bit of a break, you get some different characters that you can't get attached to, then on to the "new saga" with Episode VII (which is also visually similar and has a similarly dark-ish tone).
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.

Technically, I did tho. <Jedi> would be declined the same in SG & PL (like sheep, deer, fish). And many nouns use the /i/ declension for the plural in Rozwi. Thus, how many Jedi we talking about here…?

BTW, The movie title appears in :spa: as Los Últimos Jedi (¡PL!), implying more than one, which was a massive spoiler deposited at the movie's threshold.

It's the same in French, with Les Derniers Jedi.

More spoiler-y spoilers.

Favorite part: Hyperspace Holdo. I could hear a pin drop in that theater. But it makes me wonder why nobody in the galaxy's tried relativistic weapons before.
Most confusing part: Canto Bight! We better be seeing the Master Codebreaker again, because otherwise, they spent way too much time looking for a character who barely got one line.
